An Effective and Exceptional Experience "The AquaTech" Difference. Practical approach to pool operations training. On-demand content - learn at your own pace and on your own schedule. You will be assigned to a small cohort with an experienced instructor who will be available to answer your questions within the online course or during virtual live meetings. Virtual proctored exam - no need to travel. Access to the online modules for the length of certification (five years)
During this time of restricted travel, there are more options than ever to obtain your pool operator certification online - and the quality of the experience varies widely. Some traditional programs pivoted quickly to online courses. The delivery options are far from ideal: 2 days straight of signing in to watch PowerPoint presentations or mindlessly clicking through screens of dull content in online courses with minimal interaction. AquaTech is different.
